Made for Memory Care

        Heartwood is an Assisted Living in Appleton, Wisconsin, specializing in Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our enhanced-assisted living services allow for the continuation of care through each stage of your loved one’s illness. Thus, whether your loved one requires minimal or extensive assistance, we provide the quality care they deserve.

Memory Care: Our Complete Continuum of Care

Unlike other Assisted Livings that transfer their residents to a memory care unit as their disease progresses, Heartwood’s full continuum of care allows your loved one to age in place. 

One of the main advantages of this feature is consistency. Too much change can be overwhelming for anyone, let alone for those experiencing memory loss, which is why we provide consistency whenever possible – consistency in their surroundings, caregivers, peers, and routine. Consistency in caregivers and peers allows our residents to spend their days surrounded by familiar people who know them and help them enjoy life, experience feelings of belonging and purpose, and maintain their current skills through our daily path of engagement. It also improves the quality of care, as it helps our staff get to know each resident better, including their interests, likes/dislikes, and individualized plan of care, ensuring their unique needs are met. Consistency in the environment promotes safety by assisting our residents in orientating themselves to their surroundings, even as their disease progresses.

Heartwood’s unique ability to provide care to individuals through every point of their disease spectrum allows your loved one to live safely, comfortably, and happily. Not to mention, it provides convenience and ease by saving your future self from the conversation about moving to a memory care unit as their disease progresses. 

Additional Healthcare and Rehabilitative Services

In-house rehabilitative services, including physical, occupational, and speech therapies.

Residents can remain living at Heartwood Homes while receiving skilled nursing and rehab therapy from professional, licensed staff. Our philosophy is to restore each resident as quickly as possible to his or her highest level of functioning and independence.

In-house daily x-rays and laboratory work. There is no need for families to bring their loved ones into an emergency room or doctor’s office for minor laboratory tests or x-rays. Heartwood offers 24 hour access to these services.

Hospice Care

Heartwood embraces the hospice philosophy of ensuring a resident’s right to dignity and comfort during the final phases of their lives. We work with preferred providers who have agreed to abide by healthcare’s best practices.

Hospice providers, in conjunction with Heartwood staff, tailor a resident- and family-centered hospice care program. Together, we make it possible for our residents who have end-of-life needs to receive high-quality hospice care while remaining at Heartwood.

Short Term Stays / Respite Care

Designed for stays of a few days to several months, our short term stays are perfect when family members are away on a vacation or business trip or require a short break from caring for a loved one in their lives. Short term stays are also an option for seniors who need additional assistance after a hospital visit or during an illness. Many of our permanent residents also begin their lives with us by evaluating our community with short term stays.

Prior to staying with us, we conduct an on-site assessment with the senior and their family members.

This assessment helps determine the appropriate services and proper care for each individual. Once a senior becomes a resident of Heartwood, they have access to all of the same services and accommodations that are afforded our full-time residents.
